Our Cottage Extension - Living With The Builders

We are nearing the end but this is where it gets messy.

This is where the builders are working and through that gap is where Harvey and I are living. Cosy isn't it?

Upstairs has just been plastered and now we can actually see our bedroom

I love the landing. The lattice work spiral staircase will arrive later this week and hopefully will fit in the hole - fingers crossed.

This afternoon the plaster board started to go up downstairs. This makes a huge difference.

And when your windows go in you really feel as though you are getting there.
Tomorrow it is going to piss down again so think of me as I test out my new wellington boots.

So much work, but it'll be worth-it in the looking forwrd to seeing the spiral staircase.

This reminds me of the movie Under the Tuscan Sun with Diane lane. She lived with builders too.

Everything is looking amazing.
